At Living Stones we hold God’s revealed word, the Bible, as our ultimate authority for teaching, reproof, correction and training (2 Tim. 3:16). We strive to partner with like-minded ministries like Eternity Bible College whose purpose is to train people to live and die well through an intense biblical training. Eternity Bible College is an institution of Christian higher education that exists to glorify God through graduates whose lives are transformed by rigorous study of the Bible as Scripture, impassioned love for God, and gracious service in the church for the world (Take from Eternity’s website). Eternity Bible College is affordable so that its students may avoid going into debt and be intimately involved in serving their local church. Eternity Bible College is also unique in that their faculties are theologically trained practitioners who are able to take the biblical truths found in God’s word and walk with their students as they directly apply it to ministry and life today.

Living Stones LA Student Adoption Program
As expressed through our affiliation with Eternity Bible College (EBC) we are a church that desires to partner with the work that EBC is doing in training students to live and die well.
College is an interesting time in a person’s life. A student has removed themselves from the direct authority of their parents and begins to make more decisions on their own. In many cases this autonomous freedom paired with the growing bible knowledge from EBC creates rogue students who are not committed to one Body but rather jump from Church to Church because they become frustrated with how ugly Christ’s bride can sometimes be. This combination can also create a “messiah-complex” in which the student believes it is their duty to go and “save the world” without first considering the vital role of the Local Church or their place within her. Although at the heart of these desires there is probably a pure passion that simply longs to see the church to live as she should and for sinners to be saved, more often than not that pure passion becomes muddled by the pride and lack of wisdom of a young, passionate man or woman.
It is our heart as a church to see the value of the zealous college student and recognize that they are a vital part of the Body of Christ, not merely a useless student in training. We desire to utilize the training a student receives at EBC in order to edify the body. While walking with a student in brotherly love through the ups and downs of ministry we hope that the orthodoxy being learned at EBC has an opportunity to flesh itself out into the orthopraxy of everyday life.
At the heart of the Student Adoption Program is the idea that we as a Church would take a student in and treat them like family. Their burdens will become our burdens and our burdens will become theirs’. As we collectively seek to fully proclaim by word and deed the supremacy and worth of Jesus Christ we as his disciples desire to partner with the student in making more disciples of Jesus Christ.
